During his meeting with NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg, in Rome, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte pointed out the “centrality of the Enlarged Mediterranean for European security”, now threatened by the “arc of instability stretching from the Mediterranean to the Middle East”. Which is why it is important for NATO, an alliance under US command, which Conte describes as the “pillar of interior and international security”. This is a complete inversion of reality.I’m no fan of Islamic or African culture but the insufferable U.S. and European urge to remake every damn thing under the sun drives me up the wall. A simple alternative to this arrogance would be to let other nations handle their affairs without interference and Western preaching. Those nations then keep their populations at home, whether voluntarily or because of vigorous efforts sealing off Western nations. We do business with them but do not import foreigners to destroy our homelands.
It is the foundation of USA / NATO strategy which in fact provoked the “arc of instability” with its two wars against Iraq, the two other wars which demolished the states of Yugoslavia and Libya, and the war aimed at demolishing the state of Syria.
Plan A, of course, is this arrogant remaking of tribal and Islamic societies with absolutely no clue as to likely consequences after which, when chaos and terror take root, we transform our own nations with millions of unassimilable and hostile foreigners whose nations we have trashed. Jeebus. This makes sense to the brilliant minds at the Council of Foreign Relations, the Atlantic Council, NATO, National Security Council, and the New York Times. This is the phenomenon of obtuseness. Two alternatives present themselves. One obviously sensible. The other obviously lunatic. Which one do Western leaders choose every bleeping time without fail 24/7 and twice on leap year? Correct! They choose the lunatic option.
